From Infoworld's top stories...PJ Connolly has tackled the Notes/Domino 6.5 release in the InfoWorld labs. A "very good" score of 8.2:

Although some of the features new to Notes 6.5 are merely catching up to the ubiquitous Microsoft Outlook, in other areas such as presence awareness, Notes is on par with the competition. Improved management features on the Domino 6.5 server make this a compelling upgrade for IT departments still using R5 or earlier versions.
I don't think he's given Lotus enough credit for the instant messaging/presence integration.... especially the fact that it is available with a single checkbox in any application (which, IMHO, is leagues better than the competition, not "on par").
